Dietitians can advise on an extensive range of food related problems in both healthy people and those in ill health or disease.
‘Dietitian’ is a protected job title. Only those registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) in the UK with a degree in nutrition and dietetics are appropriately qualified and can call themselves a Dietitian.
Nutritionist is not a licensed title. Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist without any formal qualifications, so check their background first and that they studied an AFN accredited course.
Dietitians are the only nutritional professionals to be regulated by law and governed by an ethical code.
